Publishers Weekly gives an excellent review to Leanda de Lisle’s forthcoming book about the Tudors.
‘Tudor: The Family Story 1437-1603’ is published on the UK on August 29th.
‘This fresh take on the Tudor dynasty is history at its best. Covering everything from the Tudors’ obscure beginnings, when a Welsh squire named Owen Tudor literally fell into the lap of Henry V’s widow, Catherine of Valois, and later married her, to the death of the couple’s great-great-granddaughter, Elizabeth I…This compelling tale is driven by three-dimensional people and relationships, and de Lisle does a fantastic job of making them feel lived and dramatic.’
